A short review on DoomRL
« on: May 10, 2013, 20:27 »

Ah, not quite sure where to put this. So... basically, I'm a member and mod of a place called Freakin' Awesome Network. It was formerly a place called Wrestlecrap, which was one huge wrestling forum. Eventually, it grew to the point where it became a forum for a lot of random topics, mostly pertaining to pop culture and whatnot, so the site and forum changed. The site itself is slowly trying to built up its content with all sorts of article, reviews included. Since I'm part of the writing team, I went and decided to do some reviews on roguelikes, starting with Doom.

Here it is: http://www.freakinawesomenetwork.net/2013/05/doom-the-roguelike/ - frankly, I'm afraid I am a bit too sloppy with it, and I think that sometime later on I'll make a more polished review or guide to it.

And, if anyone is interested, here's the forum of the site: http://officialfan.proboards.com/ - gonna try to get more people interested in the game later on with a thread.

Good stuff, spread the word! It would sound enticing to me at least - hell, I got drawn in by one screenshot and five lines of text. I offered Jay to do a full review when 0997 came out, but sadly I got no response. Good to see word of mouth lives.

The review looks pretty well written, and attractive as well. I was lured to DoomRL by a small paragraph of text with the general idea like "Doom Roguelike - you will laugh but this thing actually exists, and it is worth trying!", and, I believe, your review has a much more comprehensive approach to the game.

In the event that another update is made, I'll get to crackin' on a new article regarding the game. Perhaps a guide, or a run on the game. Perhaps a lets play while I'm sozzled on tequila.

For now, I'll make a thread about the game in our forums, to spread the word out. Don't really use Facebook, but our site has one, so it'll probably be mentioned there as well.
